Giant Juicy Fly

Have you ever laid your head down on the pillow just about to drift off into dreamland when all of a sudden you hear... the irritating buzz of a giant juicy fly buzzing past your ear in the night?

You lay there for a minute thinking "it will go away" knowing all the while that it won't! Finally, you drag yourself up and find some sort of weapon to use in order to wallop the giant flying intruder. You're swinging your arms and jumping around the room all while your spouse is wondering what in the world you're doing as you leap onto the bed because the juicy creature has landed on the ceiling. It takes off again but then lands and remains quiet while it watches you from its' secret location as you stand in the middle of your bed... waiting for the next fly-by. Finally, it flies into the bathroom and you immediately spring from the bed to the floor in order to slam the door to trap him. Now what? To kill or not to kill? That is the question.
Some revealing events from last evening. :)

That's pretty funny.
The answer to your question is no I haven't ever done that.

You are a very special person.

I'm still laughing at the idea of you doing that.

Make it stop.

Anne said...

Just one look at that juicy fly will do it every time. :)

I don't know why, but giant flies like that one creep me out. I keep thinking they're not really insects but some sort of space aliens scoping us out before invading our planet.

Our problem at the moment is not flies, but mosquitoes and gnats: we've been getting more of them than we're used to thanks to all the flooding and by damn those things are annoying!

But yes, I have experienced exactly that recently, and shall do more as the summer progresses, I'm pretty sure.

The high pitched noise really gets to me. And also, if a mosquito bites me I react and the affected area really swells up. I mean, it’s not life threatening or anything, but it’s not nice. Once I got bitten on the breast and within hours it looked like I had a third one. I had to go to school like that, and even in a loose shirt it showed. Oy, did everyone stare…

Basically, if they end up in my room, their lives are up. I have to kill them, no matter how long it takes. I square it with my conscience and hopefully restrain God from condemning me to a fiery ever after in the depths of Hell by pointing out to Him that they not only irritate and bite ME , but also my dog, and that, I cannot forgive. Hurt me, fine, but touch my dog and you die.

And let that be a lesson to the lot of you!

*narrows eyes then wonders away muttering to herself in an unnerving fashion…*

I would have slept through the entire thing. And, I would have been snoring, too.
